Travel Information

Being in the New York Metropolitan area, Novo Diveevo is accessible from the major international airports (JFK, La Guardia, Newark, and White Plains) and local train stations.  Due to logistical constraints the School cannot arrange pickup from the airport(s) or from Tarrytown Train Station; however, pickup from the Nanuet Train Station or the Nanuet Park and Ride is possible.


From the airports by car: all four airports are serviced by Uber, Lyft, and/or standard taxi services. Depending on the time of arrival, this option may be the easiest logistically and relatively affordable (for example, the ride from JFK to Novo Diveevo is approximately 40 miles and without traffic will take you about 50 minutes; Newark is a similar distance away and without traffic the drive will be 45 minutes; the drive from La Guardia is 40 minutes; the drive from White Plains is 30 minutes). Please note that during rush hour the drive may be substantially longer and the price of Uber and Lyft will vary depending on surge pricing. 

Note: The Convent’s physical address is 100 Smith Road, Nanuet, NY, 10954; if going to the Sonesta Simply Suites hotel first, the hotel’s address is 20 Overlook Blvd., Nanuet, NY 10954.   

From the airports by local train

We do not recommend this option if flying into White Plains.

From JFK/La Guardia/or Newark: The quickest alternative by train is to get from the airport of arrival to Grand Central Station in Manhattan and then take the Metro North Hudson line to Tarrytown. In terms of travel time and number of transfers this option may be easiest; however, please be aware that pickup from Tarrytown will not be possible (there are taxis/Uber easily accessible at the station, however, and it is approximately a 15-minute drive from there to the convent/Sonesta Simply Suites).

If needing/desiring pickup from a train station, you will want to take the Pascack Valley Line to the Nanuet Train Station. Please note that depending on the airport you are leaving from the travel time and cost will vary, as will the number of transfers.
